Emergency surgery

Mahogany was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in December 2012 while in college and has been braving it by herself with support of friends. Recently Mahogany has been more sick than usual. A Fistula was found, resulting in surgery later this month but unfortunately, things became extremely worse as of 10/3 and she was admitted into UPMC Passavant in PGH. She is going in for emergency surgery today 10/4. Mahogany works for Children’s Hosptial of Pittsburgh, as well as a local country club. She has an adorable dog, too! Unfortunately with this surgery, she cannot go back to work for 6 weeks and will not be able to pay her bills in full. I created this fundraiser in the hopes that you all could help her in this emergency. Mahogany is selfless so it was like pulling teeth, getting her to agree to this fundraiser. If you can’t donate monetarily, please share and send positive vibes!

Thank you - will update!
